By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Aug 13 - Leader of Opposition in the Assam Legislative Assembly Debabrata Saikia today said the answers provided by the government on some questions raised by Congress MLAs during the Budget Session were not �satisfactory�.

�The Congress members raised various issues concerning the State of Assam in the Assembly through questions, amendments, short notice, Zero Hour, Point of Order, Rule 54, Rule 301 and so on. As per Rules and Procedure of Assam Legislative Assembly, some matters were selected and some matters and questions were not allowed due to lack of time or procedure,� he said after conclusion of the Budget Session.

He added, �The answers provided by the government on some questions were not satisfactory as it could not clear the air over the matters raised.�

Saikia said almost all the Congress party legislators put up questions concerning various issues. Some were answered while some were not even admitted, he claimed.

Saikia said the party could raise some burning issues like continuation of Special Category Status, proposed auction of oilfields, increase of VAT, state tax on petroleum products, cancellation of subsidy on LPG, devastating floods in Assam, recent violent incidents in Kokrajhar, Doomdooma and Karbi Anglong, GST and the NRC and �D-voter� issue.
